About Dysport AND XEOMIN

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao offers Tucson, AZ patients numerous nonsurgical options for skin rejuvenation. Dysport and Xeomin are injectable wrinkle treatments that work similarly to BOTOX by reducing and softening dynamic lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated facial movements and expressions (like laughing, smiling, and frowning) that, over several decades, cause the facial muscles to tighten. This causes the overlying skin to form a grooved line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. Dysport, in particular, was specially created to address the vertical lines between the eyebrows known as frown lines while Xeomin is equally effective for the overall face. These solutions temporarily block signals to the muscle so your facial lines are smoother and provide natural-looking results that don't look frozen. To look more youthful, learn more about Dysport and Xeomin injectable treatments at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery.

Ideal Candidates

Dysport and Xeomin are ideal if you are looking for a nonsurgical option to improve moderate to severe vertical frown (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows. Since dynamic wrinkles and lines are caused by chronic use, they can develop at any age and make you look mad, tired, or sad. Dysport and Xeomin are fast, effective treatments that address dynamic wrinkles without giving you a "frozen" look. Since Dysport and Xeomin spread to treat a cluster of wrinkles, they're also ideal to improve upon Crow's feet, the fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes. Most patients at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery see visible improvements in their appearance only a few days after their procedure. These outcomes can often last four months or more, depending on the patient.

Procedure Technique

Dysport and Xeomin injections are administered in one of our private treatment rooms after your consultation with Dr. Rao has concluded. Your treatment will take about 15 – 30 minutes. A numbing cream or local anesthetic is usually not needed since the injections are done with a fine-gauge needle that causes little discomfort. However, if you're concerned about pain, you may request a topical anesthetic to make the session as comfortable as possible. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and carefully placed injections will be administered along the intended areas, followed by a cold compress to lessen swelling and bruising. After your injections at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery, you can return to your regular tasks, but you should try to avoid strenuous activities for at least one day.

What to Expect

After a Dysport or Xeomin treatment, you may notice some mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, but this generally will disappear in a few days. You should sleep upright for at least one night and continue to use a cold compress as needed. Results are commonly seen within a few days as the severity of your dynamic wrinkles is minimized for a smoother, softer appearance. These results typically last for about 3 – 4 months, depending on the product used. Future treatments can be performed at our Tucson, AZ office to maintain your youthful results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Dysport and Xeomin cost?
The total cost of your treatment will depend on the amount of product required to achieve your goals. During your initial consultation, your injector will create your unique treatment plan with Dysport or Xeomin and then offer a cost estimate. Ask about our current injectable treatment specials at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery and the different payment methods we accept.

What's the difference between Dysport, Xeomin, and BOTOX?
Dysport, Xeomin, and BOTOX are all cosmetic injections to improve dynamic facial wrinkles. Dysport results generally become visible faster than BOTOX. Additionally, Dysport and Xeomin results tend to last longer than BOTOX, and the products have a better spread. During your initial consultation, your injector will help you understand if Dysport or another wrinkle relaxer is best for your treatment.

Should I get a wrinkle relaxer or a wrinkle filler treatment?
Most people don't know the difference between injectable wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin) and fillers (such as Juvéderm). Simply put, a wrinkle relaxer addresses dynamic wrinkles while a filler corrects static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements, including smiling, laughing, frowning, and all of your other facial expressions. Dysport and Xeomin relax the muscle under the skin to create a smoother appearance. Static wrinkles form due to decreased skin elasticity so the injection fills the skin so it's even. During your initial consultation, your injector will listen to your concerns and goals and help you determine whether a wrinkle relaxer, filler, or both will produce your best results.

Can Dysport or Xeomin be combined with other treatments?
At Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery, we offer a number of aesthetic treatments that can be used to boost the results of your injections. Depending on your areas of concern and goals, your custom treatment plan may include Dysport or Xeomin injections for dynamic wrinkles, a filler for static wrinkles or volume in your cheeks and lips, as well as a laser skin treatment. Be open during your initial consultation so we can make a treatment plan that provides an outcome you're thrilled with.

How often should I receive Dysport or Xeomin injections?
During your consultation, your injector will suggest how often you should get injections at our office in Tucson, AZ to maintain your results. You may schedule injections sooner or wait longer after you know how Dysport and Xeomin work on your wrinkles.
